My weight loss journey (with a bit of help from duromine)

Daily Weight Loss Journal

Day 1 – 29/11/2011 (start height 174cm, weight 90.2, age 33)

Well jumped on the scales and the starting weight was 90.2….not bad considering I had eaten like a pig Saturday (my grandmother’s 80th) and Sunday (Sizzler for lunch to celebrate my niece getting top 20% in the national school testing, cannot get enough of that cheese bread!).

A month ago I started my healthy eating and exercise regime….I am eating three meals a day, breakfast - fruit and yoghurt, lunch - salad and some form of protein and dinner - salad and some form of protein with a glass of milk…must investigate how to eat a bit better than this…work in a hospital so should speak to one of the many dietitians we have here! I also have been walking to and from work (12km total).

I would be extremely happy to get anywhere below 80. I injured my shoulder in a fall about 3 years ago and because of the pain (I have had 2 shoulder operations in 2010 with possibly a third one next year, plus I also had an emergency appendectomy!), my exercise levels dropped off completely and my eating habits became atrocious…I was lucky to eat one meal a day because I was unhappy with my shoulder and just couldn’t be bothered.

Went to the GP’s yesterday to get the script and he took my height as 171cm. There was a little note next to the height device to add 3cm to height but he didn’t do this and I didn’t want to correct him as I thought he may get angry and not give me the script! He told me I must have shrunk, I remarked I thought that is what happens when you age! Went to pharmacist and handed over my Duromine 15mg script while hiding behind my sunglasses (didn’t want anyone to see me!), I handed over my money and walked away feeling like I had already lost weight.

Had what I classed as bad food for dinner (pasta with tomato based sauce, I usually don’t eat pasta at home as I cook for one and don’t like eating leftovers), was ok and went to bed excited about the future!

Didn’t sleep well last night (must be getting prepared for my tablets as this is what I have heard happens), got up at 5am took my tablets, had some breakfast, got ready for work and walked the 6km to work!

At work now and slightly nervous about embarking on this helpful drug to give me a much needed weight loss boost. Having polycystic ovarian syndrome makes it a little bit more difficult to lose the weight and having the weight makes the PCOS difficult to control! Catch 22! Trying not to read peoples reactions to this drug as everyone is different but looking forward to a new me!

Looking to the future and to a healthier, slimmer version of me!

So how are you going?

Can you give us an update on how things have been on the Duromine?

You walked 6km to work? Wow! That's awesome. I need to learn the habit of walking to work. :D Walking is really the least thing I want to do but right now, I'm trying to do it little by little. :D
